Square Enix To Showcase NieR, Kingdom Hearts MoM, SaGa

Square Enix at TGS 2020 will reveal new info on NieR, SaGa, Dragon Quest The Adventure of Dai, Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory, and more.

At TGS 2020, Square Enix will have some Yoko Taro, Kingdom Hearts, SaGa and Final Fantasy XIV. As a reminder, the company already mentioned additional info on Final Fantasy XVI will only come sometime in 2021, so don’t expect any of that. Square Enix will also reveal lots of new information on mobile games quite popular in Japan but pretty obscure outside, like the Toji no Miko gacha game or Dragon Quest Rivals Ace. There’s even a segment on the Sinoalice manga adaptation.

Here’s the full schedule TGS 2020 schedule of Square Enix, translated below. The most important events are in bold, with links to a time converter.
